Greystone GT add Mercedes with Price and Macleod to British GT entry

Mark McLoughlin’s Greystone GT has announced that it is adding a second car to its Intelligent Money British GT Championship entry for 2023 with the addition of the Forelle Estates-sponsored Mercedes AMG GT3 for Mike Price and Callum Macleod.

The team had previously announced its McLaren 720S GT3 entry for Andrey Borodin and Oli Webb.

Mike Price began his racing career in 2017 in the Porsche Club Championship. In 2022, with Callum Macleod as his teammate, Hampshire-based Price finished 5th in the GT Cup GT3 standings.

“I’m excited to step up to the British GT Championship with Greystone GT and Callum,” said Mike Price. “He and I have raced together for the past two years and every time we’ve moved up a level, our performance level has raised with it. That’s absolutely the aim this year, which will be the first time for a while that I’ve had the same car two years in a row.

“Greystone GT are a new team for me, but I think they’re the right fit. Mark has built a proper racing business with the right infrastructure to continue growing and has lots of good people within the team; something that was obvious from racing against them over the past two years. I’m looking forward to seeing what we can achieve together.”

Class winner at the 2015 24 Hours of Spa Callum Macleod is excited to return to the Intelligent Money British GT Championship for his first full-season since 2019.

“I’m looking forward to the new season, which will be my first full-time year in British GT since 2019. Mike was keen to step up to British GT this year and Greystone GT do seem to be the ideal fit for us for the coming season. Mike’s progress was rapid in GT3 across his rookie season in 2022 and he was easily the most-improved driver in the class in GT Cup.

“I’ve won races in British GT throughout my career in the series so I know what I can reasonably expect from myself and from the Mercedes, and if Mike can continue to progress at the rate he’s shown over the past few years, I think we can aim for podiums by the end of the season.”

Team Principal Mark McLoughlin said: “I’m very pleased to welcome Mike and Callum to Greystone GT; two drivers we’ve raced against extensively in both GT4 and GT3 over the past two years in the GT Cup. Mike has shown immense progress over the past two seasons and we’ll do everything we can to help continue that in 2023 as we target strong results throughout the campaign.”

The 2023 Intelligent Money British GT Championship gets underway at Oulton Park on April 8 – 10 witnh the pre-season Media Day taking place at Donington on Marh 14.
